Title (EN) ELECTRICAL STEAM IRON
(FR) FER A REPASSER ELECTRIQUE A VAPEUR
Abstract:
(EN) An iron with a lower housing consisting of a heating base (15) and a sole plate (21) under the base, an evaporation chamber (28) and a steam distribution chamber (32) in communication with steam outlets in the sole plate. The evaporation chamber comprises at least one steam channel (44) having an outlet in the lower surface (23) of the base (15) and arranged in such a way that the steam flows through the evaporation chamber along a path which promotes evaporation of the water before it reaches said channel, and the distribution chamber (32) is provided in the lower surface (23) of the base (15) and communicates with the outlet of the steam channel (44).
(FR) Ce fer comporte une semelle comprenant une base chauffante (15) et une plaque (21) montée sous la base, une chambre de vaporisation (28) et une chambre de distribution de vapeur (32) en relation avec des trous de sortie de vapeur percés dans la plaque. Selon l'invention, la chambre de vaporisation comporte au moins un passage de vapeur (44) qui débouche sur la face inférieure (23) de la base (15) et qui est agencé de manière que la vapeur chemine dans la chambre de vaporisation suivant un parcours adapté à favoriser la vaporisation de l'eau avant d'atteindre le passage, et la chambre de distribution (32) est ménagée dans la face inférieure (23) de la base (15) et est en communication avec le débouché du passage de vapeur (44).
